Hope something will work for you!
I usually sit in an arm chair, feet on a foot stool, elbows maybe resting on the chair arms. Poor posture I guess but it works. I guess it's mostly because I can't really roll my shoulders forward sitting like this.

I should never overestimate my basic arithmetic skills.

Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
